in best case scenario
Philip can have 21 cards in total ;
which sufficies all given relation
so if even cards are taken out ; Philip will have 19 cards or 17 cards left
IMO E
as odd-even = odd integer options would be correct..

Well I actually solved the question using answer options as hint..
so seeing 19,18,17 ; the best pick of the cards which Philip can have is 21
case 1: Terrence has 2/3 as many cards as Phillip; Terrence has ; 14 cards
now question says "If Terrence were to win one card from Phillip, he would have 3/4 as many cards as Phillip"
so
since P= 21 ; taking 1 card would make it 20 ; and adding 1 to T will make him have 15 cards ; or say T = 20*3/4 = 15

secondly : "If Terrence wins an even number of cards from Phillip, which of the following could be the number of cards that Phillip has left"

knowing the rule that odd integer-even integer ; odd integer ; we can say from given option that Philips would end with an odd integer count of cards upon giving even cards..
so option 19,17 are correct...

hope this helps..
